I don't know whether I'm the last to find out about this or not, but it still burns me up. Apparently Telefragged has sold the adventuregamer.com domain to DreamCatcher Games, which is basically some sort of online store. At least it sells adventure games.

However, it means that the old subdomains of now-mojoized sites such as Worldofmi (mi.adventuregamer.com), LucasFans (lucasfans.adventuregamer.com), and the Grim Fandango Network (grim.adventuregamer.com) no longer are there to point to their new locations, and DreamCatcher gets all the traffic (and there is still lots of it) that goes through the old domain and subdomains. I think a lot of search engines still have a lot of these sites listed with the old domains and subdomains, too.

Anyone have any more info on this? I want to know how it affects AG.

I was talking to Marv ('he who runs TF') about this a while ago.. My own site (www.quakesrc.org) is hosted by Telefragged.

Although I know TF has done this kind of thing in the past, and I made damn sure I owned my -own- domain name. Supposibly TF didn't sell the domain, they just let it expire and someone else brought it. I'd actually believe this, as a few of my friends have had their domains expire by TF - although managed to get them renewed before some porn company picked them up.

That said, AdventureGamer has moved to www.adventuregamers.com, and are undergoing a very Mojo-esque style downtime. Although, unfortunatly, they KNOW they won't be able to get their old domain back.

The funny thing is, TeleFragged's logs still record the number of hits on the previous subdomains like mi.adventuregamer.com
